While developing the City’s 2020 Comprehensive Plan, Grand Junction community members called for the City to become a leader in resource management and sustainability. To serve this goal, the City established strategic priorities in Quality of Life and Resource Stewardship.
These priorities steer projects that promote the livability of the community, stewardship of resources, sustainability, and social and recreational opportunities.
These efforts also draw on a history of successful conservation programs that help the City care for its valuable natural resources and make more economical choices to improve the efficiency of City facilities and operations.
The City continues to address environmental challenges facing the community through efforts to conserve water, divert and mitigate waste, transition to clean energy, preserve natural landscapes, and reinforce community resiliency to changes.
